Farmhouse Porter

Francais

This beer was brewed in January 2017 with pale ale, crystal and chocolate malts, hopped with Styrian Golding hops and fermented with British ale yeasts. After fermentation and a couple of weeks of conditioning the beer was laid down in some well-used Burgundian wine barrels fully inoculated with a host of 'wild' microbes. Several months later the beer was racked and bottle conditioned yielding a delicious, fruity, farmhouse porter.

Here are a few images of the brew interspersed with photos of cute farmhouse animals.
